we sat by the window in afternoon light. the record player softly playing in background. a distant beat under our talk. as moments passed talk became silent and music filled our room. slivers of sunlight danced across the glass. she moved her feet, slow at first, stepping on hints of light. spreading across rustic wooden floors like drops of water on hot pavement. she moved under the notes like a graceful dancer on opening night.
she danced to the sunlight.
arms twirling in open air.
a smile gently on her face
and golden rays brushing her cheek
a new canvas waiting for life.
i want to take this moment. tuck it in my pocket and save it for a rainy day. save it forever.
Yesterday our music classes started back up and Jessica was beyond thrilled. In fact, we came home to experiment with her new materials (here she's holding a shaker) and listen to music. At first I put on some tunes so the kids could dance and play and I planned on cleaning up the kitchen. But when I caught Jess dancing out of the corner of my eye I had to put down my work and join in. This girl loves to dance and she loves her music. She takes after her mom and dad! So on a Wednesday afternoon we danced by the window to the Dead and forgot about our chores. We embraced the light of the day and it was good moment.
